Critic Review - San Francisco Chronicle

Alas, this time there are about three or four mild laughs in the whole picture, and the entire visual aspect of the movie is a botched disappointment.

That's interesting. I wonder why so many people enjoyed the movie so thoroughly? What a great film. Sorry you couldn't find a way to enjoy it as others have.

You gotta see the content in an animated movie at the first place rather than the visual aspect. Well this aint a pixar product any how to have a magnificent look.

Your first sentence sort of makes sense, although I disagree with it. Your second sentence convinced me you need to relearn English, or get a better translator.

I respectfully disagree about the visuals (and the laughs, too), but that's experience for you. It's subjective. Alas, I was happy an animated family tentpole blockbuster was bold enough to embrace genocide and adoption anxiety issues, and there are lots of great family films with these darker undertones (WALL-E, Toy Story 3, both Babe films, etc.). The schematic nature of the story was outweighed for me by the lengths to which Po's character had to reach to find himself. I'd be more than pleased if my future children grew up with this movie in their collection.

The movie is nothing more than bland action scenes padded out by a cliched, stupid plot filled with multiple plot holes. The visuals are probably the only good thing about it.

Makes no sense, the visuals are incredible and the comedy is hilarious throughout!

I hope "botched disappointment" means you were hoping to be disappointed but you weren't!

If you actually think the visuals weren't amazing there's something wrong with you, this film was breathtakingly gorgeous!

Nothing's creepier than adults vehemently defending a cartoon. Nothing more hilarious to watch, either.

Last i checked it was made for families, and i went with my GF and had a better time than when we saw horrible bosses. But by all means you can continue to laugh at people's opinions because this is a cartoon.

It truly flabbergasts me that anyone could see KFP2 and come away not being impressed by the production design. Personally I thought it blew away virtually every other CG film to date, in that regard.

i had more "mild" laughs watching this movie than any of the comedies released this year. Sad, but true.

I liked this film and i would never say it was botched.
